    do you dislike your accent?

    sometimes ? all the time?wish you could switch it on and off?











    me 1st:

    I HATE my english accent when speaking spanish.
    Makes me cringe everytime.

    im very aware of it also.

    I hear it sliding off my tongue with little ability to stop it.

    Its even worse when I know I'm fooling a native speaker for a bit then they catch me slip up . afterwards they stance change & dey start speaking spanglish to me

    Yeah the only person who sounds more Brooklyn than me is probably Barbara Streisand. LOL j/k

    I'm fine with my accent, like you I only can't stand it when I'm trying to speak French. (I just can't get those R's right)

    I dislike mine a lot as well. When people look at me they have a certain thought in their head as to what I will sound like or my ethnic background, especially at soca/reggae clubs When I speak mouths are dropping, but I have the ability to switch it up a bit, except when I am infuriated.
